Canada – Alberta VI

Postcard from Drumheller, in central Alberta, in Western Canada. Card shows "the world's largest dinosaur", a replica of a Tyrannosaurus rex four times life size. Drumheller and its surrounding countryside, which includes the World Heritage site, Dinosaur Provincial Park, is well known for being one of the richest dinosaur fossil locales in the world. Forty dinosaur species have been discovered here and more than 500 specimens have been removed and exhibited in museums across the globe.

Many thanks to friend Paul who was on holiday in Alberta!

Stamp used were the previously featured Arctic hares, from a series on baby animals.
